    I worked at Telligen full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Telligen (IFMC) was a great place to get hands on experience working on governmental contracts. The level of technical expertise is very high and a high majority of the technical team has been there for a number of years. Flexible work environment, compassionate management team (depending on the manager), as well as, a casual dress code. Management does a good job of working with employees for work/life balance.

    Cons

    Management has a tendency to only give high profile, important projects to the 'same' team members. This is detrimental to the moral of team members who are wanting to advance their careers. Telligen shares contracts with another company, due to this there is uncertainties regarding long-term employment. Salaries are below mid-point for numerous positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize season employees who are as qualified as those that get the high profile and important projects. Keep communication open through all levels team members.

    I worked at Telligen full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Generally workers are supportive of each other. The office is well maintained and benefits are decent. Almost all hours are M-F with paid holidays off.

    Cons

    Senior leadership doesn't take input from staff. Often seem like they think they are the experts in every field.

    The culture of the organization has deteriorated over the years as the business has declined significantly. Used to have almost 1000 employees and growing now must be closer to 600 or fewer and dropping.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior leadership should trust their staff. Good people working there - too bad they don't seem to know it!

    I have been working at Telligen as a contractor

    Pros

    Really great company to work for - work/life balance, ability to work remotely/offsite, great co-workers and hard-working employees.

    Cons

    Contract work means that there isn't always work available for you.

    I have been working at Telligen full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Leadership is improving. Company appears to have a longer term vision & strategy. Culture is casual yet professional.

    Cons

    Multiple contracts can be difficult to manage. There are many managers due to multiple contracts, but it often seems like they don't all talk or know what they are doing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-evaluate hiring standards, diversify your pool of talent. Why is it necessary to have only nurses do specific tasks. Look into Google's hiring philosophy.

    I worked at Telligen full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Working with some good people that have excellent technical skills and plethora of good technologies around to work. Nice focus upon health and is a casual environment. Decent agile methodology.

    Cons

    Management is less than great communicators and there is almost a too casual environment with many chiefs trying to run the ship with constantly changing directions. This provides little consistency from one week (or sprint) to the next. Management is too focused upon short term items rather than developing long term solutions. Senior management only have 3 year plans versus 5 and 10 year. There is a misogynistic feel to the culture too.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop long term professional development for teams and the organization.

    Pros

    Great, knowledgable co-workers, good teamwork, a variety of case types.

    Cons

    Production requirements are very high, seem unattainable without putting in a lot of extra hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Could add some flexibility by allowing employes to take 1/2 day off without showing them on production for 8 hours.

    Pros

    Wonderful company to work for! They perform contracted work and three separate times when a contract either expired or was awarded to another company, Telligen found work for me within a different contract - work that I could continue to do from my home office!

    Cons

    Unfortunately there wasn't any work available for me unless I wanted to move to the Des Moines area (which isn't possible) or have a nursing degree of some kind (which I don't).
